Entry # Baby-A-1

SARAFINA

Doll by Sointu Öhman
from... Finland


Sarafina is 17 inches tall baby doll. I made her from Darlene Rausch's excellent Bonnie pattern, which was published in the September 2009 Soft Dolls and Animals magazine. Sarafina is very patriotic doll, because she has the colors of our flag in her dress and bonnet: blue and white. Blue is the color of the sky and also Sarafina's eyes are blue. White is the color of the snow and also the clouds are white: "the sheep of the blue sky". I made her blue and white dress, bonnet and pants from satin fabric and decorated them with lace.

Srafina's skin is made from polyester knit fabric and she has lot of sculpted details. The eyes and the lips are painted with acrylic paints. Eyelashes and eyebrows are embroidered. Her blond wig is purchased and sewn in her head. Her legs and arms are jointed with plastic joints, so she can sit without support. Sarafina likes to play with her white sheep and teddy bears. The toys and the shoes are purchased.

Entry # Baby-A-5

Wendy

Doll by Melody Korlinchak
from... Coalport, PA

My name is Wendy and I am the first born daughter in the family. I am also the first baby pattern that was made with no pattern.We are a patriotic family, my Dad was born on the 4th of July.

Wendy's face was needle sculpted and then the fabrics were added and painted. I sewed the hair directly onto the head as it was a short curly look I wanted. I added joints into the arms so she would be easier to pose. She has bends in her legs to help her to sit easier. I used my experience over the years of making dolls from patterns to make my own . It was a challenge but I was happy with how she turned out. I made her sweater from an adult sweater that I had and crocheted her booties to match her Patriotic clothing. Some of the clothes were made using bits and pieces of tweaked Simplicity doll clothes patterns.

Entry # Baby-A-6

Lil Donald

Doll by Melody Korlinchak
from... Coalport, PA

Hi My name is Lil Donald. I was made using Kezi's DEAR ONES pattern. I am still trying to grow into my hair. We are waiting til after my first birthday to cut it. ( when I saw the hair fur I knew the dolls name ) My outfit was made using the patterns that came with the doll pattern , except my socks and slippers were made from re-purposed sock and a simplicity pattern. Also the tie was added because my Mom wants me to someday grow up to be President!

1st Place

Entry # Baby-A-7

Lerato

Doll by Kim Rose
from... Republic of South Africa


This is baby Lerato (her name means 'Love' in Sotho) in her traditional South African/Sesotho ShweShwe fabric dress.

Her bead necklaces, anklets, bangle and head band complete her look.

She is made from my own pattern in brown dollskin, has jointed arms and yarn hair (her curls are baked in the oven).

She is firm but cuddly and like all my cloth dolls machine washable (even the curls).


3rd Place

Entry # Baby-A-8

Maple

Doll by Jennifer Williams
from... Talking Rock, GA


Maple is an all American baby girl. She loves being outside. Whenever she's upset about anything, all you have to do is take her outdoors and show her some interesting things and she will settle right down every time. She wears cloth diapers, handmade by me. Maple is handmade from my own pattern design. I designed her to be able to fit into real newborn size clothes because it's fun shopping for baby clothes! She's approximately 21" long.

The romper she's dressed in was handmade by me and her bonnet and shoes were knitted by me from wool yarn. She's made using all natural materials. Inside she is felted in wool and then covered with 100% cotton doll skin. Her hair is made from mohair yarn, which I crocheted into a wig for her. Inside her lips I placed a small magnet, so that she can take a magnetic pacifier. She's also weighted to give her a nice real feel.


Entry # Baby-A-9

Baby Elsie

Doll by Jean Burlingame
from... Bloomfield, NY

My doll is Baby Elsie, made of faux doeskin from a pattern by Susan Fosnot.

Growing up in the 50's, I always loved the beautiful composition baby dolls that were so popular.

Elsie is an all American baby doll so I decided to make her look like an antique. I used several coats of Gesso to cover her head, shoulder plate, and upper arms & legs. Then I hand painted her body, features, and hair and used a finishing spray to seal the paint. This gives her the feel and look of the composition dolls of the 30's & 40's. She is 24" and wears an antique dress & slip, which I bought, but I crocheted her booties and made her diaper.


Entry # Baby-A-10

Little Sam

Doll by Jacqueline Johnson
from... Fremont, OH

His name is "Little Sam". I purchased the pattern from Lovely Baby Gift off of etsy. and so I began to crochet... the pattern came with the pacifier instructions and I had an old bottle I had made years ago, to add. I changed the colors of the pattern, to suit his name and theme of the challenge.

Hi... I'm Sam, some day I may grow up to be like Uncle Sam... for now I am happy playing with my bottle and pacifier and being a baby.
Mom put 48 stars on my shirt and 2 on my shoes and made my diaper red and whit striped... I think she thought she was being funny.


Entry # Baby-A-11

Sweety-Honey Baby

Doll by Anna Maria Büdy
from... München, Germany

Sweety-Honey Baby is made of felt, it has molded, embroidered face and thread hair. He wears a cloth diaper with a safety pin. He is about 13 inches long. He has his red felt swaddling clothes, which has ribbon, soutache and handmade flower element decoration, closed with special soutache and handmade French-knots.

In my childhood (in the 1950-60s) I visited kermis or church-fairs in Budapest, Hungary and there some special folk-artist-made honey-cake figures were on sale, such as hussar cavalry, swards, hearts and babies in swaddling clothes. All cakes were painted red and decorated with colored sugar flowers, mirror, lines, etc. Hussars' and babies' faces were of printed paper. Unfortunately, these figures could not be conserved, because by the time they had been disintegrated or deteriorated and thrown away or eaten when they were fresh. I was upset when I had to say "Good-bye" to a doll of this type.

So, Sweety-Honey Baby is an original product of my mind. I decided to make a more permanent "honey-cake figure". I made some researches about Hungarian honey-cake figures. Unfortunately, now these figures are close to disappearing. So I decided to bring it back somehow, turning it into a real child-plaything…into a playable doll. .
